During my time teaching at the Atelier At Flowerfield I have begun work on a sci-fi painting series based around my creator-owned IP “Space Crusaders”. These are the first two of 10 entries. I will be releasing these every two months.
The first entry is “New Dubai” and represents a Utopian vision of what the city of Dubai might look like in 800 years. heavily inspired by ’70s era artists such as Syd Mead. I wanted some cyberpunk aesthetic to seep through in the design of the biker girl, and the bike itself, while overall trying to convey a sense of wonder and scale.
The second entry is “Dynamic Duo”, and in this I wanted again to convey a sense of awe as well as scale while peeling back the curtain on what sorts of technology exists in the 28th century. We have crazy droids and sleek streamlined cars, as well as mega structures which function as a transportation hub. I was heavily inspired by the Epcott Center and the design of the monorail at Disney for this piece.
